A man accused of murder in an August 2020 shooting on South Roosevelt Avenue has been found not guilty, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.

The not guilty verdict came after a four-day trial. It was just before 11:30 on the evening of Aug. 21, 2020, police were called to the 100 block of S. Roosevelt Ave. in Mishawaka for a shooting.

That’s where officers found Ryan Serafino, 28, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Hours before the shooting, Stahl allegedly threatened to kill Serafino for breaking up his family, according to court documents.

However, the prosecution was not able to sell a convincing case regarding Stahl’s allegedly guilt.



  1. It would make a good in depth new article to list the evidence presented to the jury by the prosecution. The Public could then judge if this was a weak case or strong case presented to the jury. If the evidence was weak, a case could have been delayed to gather more evidence.
